Researchers discover unusual bone chips in 1800s clog-wearing Dutch farmers' feet 19.11.2017
A team of researchers has discovered a pattern of unusual bone chips in the feet of clog-wearing 19th-Century Dutch farmers - injuries that offer clues to the damage we may unwittingly be causing to our own feet. The unexpected prevalence of damage in the farmers' foot bones is more than just a historical curiosity; the researchers believe their findings provide new insights into how some micro-injuries happen. "What we choose to wear on our feet plays a big role in the injuries and trauma our feet can sustain," said co-author Andrea Waters-Rist from the Western University. The team examined bones excavated during the relocation of a church cemetery in the tiny village of Middenbeemster, near Amsterdam. Using osteobiography and paleopathology methods as well as stable isotope analysis and mass spectrometry on about 500 skeletons from the dairy-farming area, they have been able to reconstruct the group's diet, disease and overall health. Team member Irene Vikatou needed only good ...

Germany puts blanket ban on smartwatches for kids over privacy concerns 19.11.2017 international
Germany's telecommunications regulator has announced a blanket ban on smartwatches for children over privacy concerns and asked parents to destroy the ones already purchased. "Via an app, parents can use such children's watches to listen unnoticed to the child's environment and they are to be regarded as an unauthorised transmitting system," Jochen Homann, President, Federal Network Agency said in a statement. German telecoms regulator urged parents to destroy children’s smartwatches. Pic/Getty Images In a statement, the regulator said it had already taken action against several companies offering such smartwatches on online platforms. These smartwatches are sold by a large number of vendors in Germany. They are generally for children between the ages of five and 12 and are equipped with a SIM card and a limited telephony function which can be set up and controlled through an app. Concerns have been growing over such wearables for kids that have become popular. European watchdog group, Norwegian Consumer ...

Aaditya Thackeray asks BMC for innovative ways to utilise plastic waste 19.11.2017 national
After Shiv Sena minister Ramdas Kadam announced a ban on plastic across the state from next year onwards, a few days ago he declared a ban on plastic bottles at the Mantralaya. Now, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray, too, has jumped on the bandwagon, asking the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) administration to come up with ways to utilise plastic waste. Plastic waste at Dadar beach Aaditya has asked civic chief Ajoy Mehta to study the feasibility of using plastic waste for laying roads, an idea promoted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. The Central government's guidelines also state that plastic waste like cups and bags of up to 60 microns can be used for laying roads. Plastic bottles clog a drain According to the environment status report 2016-2017, three per cent of 9,400 metric tonnes of daily generated waste is plastic, whereas experts have claimed that it could be more than three per cent. In a series of tweets on Saturday, he said, "Along with the plastic ban across the state, I ...

Bengaluru: 13-year-old photographer with an eye for nature and wildlife 19.11.2017
BENGALURU: A 13-year-old wildlife photography enthusiast from the city will be holding a three-day exhibition, in association with World Wildlife Fund (WWF), at Chitrakala Parishath from November 24 to 26. The photographer, Vedansh Pandey, a class VIII student, said, "A photograph is not made on the camera, it is made on either side of it. Being an environmentalist, I feel great pleasure to use my love of photography to create awareness about the beauty of the wild." The exhibition will be inaugarated by Hari Somashekhar, WWF State Director for Karnataka. The budding wildlife photographer was the only child speaker at the Global Environment Summit held at National Institute of Advanced Studies. This rare sense of maturity stems from the fact that Vedansh has been involved in wildlife photography since his childhood. "I grew up in Mysuru and Malnad and I just fell in love with the nature there. This love for nature and animals led me towards photography, as I just wanted to freeze time ...

Cost-effective catalyst developed to recycle main causes of climate change: CO2, CH4 19.11.2017
A cost-effective catalyst has been developed to recycle two of the main causes behind climate change - carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). In a study, published in the journal Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, scientists have described how they created an advanced nickel-based catalyst strengthened with tin and ceria. They later used it to transform CO2 and CH4 into a synthesis gas that can be used to produce fuels and a range of valuable chemicals. While carbon capture technology is common, it can be expensive and, in most cases, requires extreme and precise conditions for the process to be successful. It is hoped the new catalyst will help make the technology more widely available across industry, and both easier and cheaper for it to be extracted from the atmosphere. "This is an extremely exciting project and we believe we have achieved something here that can make a real impact on CO2 emissions," said Tomas R Reina, from the University of Surrey in the UK. "Utilising CO2 in this ...
